Cheap Kid-Friendly Activities for Summer

Written by Gelato Products

Summer is just around the corner, which means your kids will be home on summer break and searching for something fun to do. Sure, you can take them to an amusement park or plan a family vacation, but you don’t have to spend a fortune just to have a good time. There are many fun and affordable things you can do with your kids without spending a lot of money. Need some inspiration? Here are a few affordable, kid-friendly activities perfect for summertime.

Frozen Treats

Nearly every child loves a trip to the ice cream parlor. Instead of going to a traditional ice cream shop, though, take your kids to a unique place, such as a gelateria or frozen yogurt shop. You might have to drive to the next town to find one, but at least you don’t have to go on a road trip for this adventure. The point is to give them something yummy to eat that they can’t have at home. Many gelaterias have cute plastic ice cream cups and ice cream spoons that you can reuse for fun activities at home.

Botanical Gardens

Chances are there is a botanical garden near your home. Pack a lunch and take your kids to the gardens, an affordable way to get out of the home and enjoy nature. Most gardens have hiking areas or trails so that your kids can also get some exercise while out. Make things fun by ending the day at the gift shop and buy a gift or two to remember the day.
